And then, it was time to go to the museum! Sure, it feels childish at first to think of visiting a museum, but visiting the local Museum anywhere provides a perspective no other experience can offer. And it was one of the most beautiful museums that I have seen in my life, with the most elaborate display of artefacts, covering a spectrum of Saudi life, history, art and culture. The national museum of Riyadh is in the middle of King Abdul-Aziz Historical Center.
The building covers twenty-eight thousand square meters, providing an educational experience for all segments of visitors. It has on display, comprehensive exhibits presenting a topic in a successive manner, starting from the creation of the universe until the Modern Age with its main idea about the Arabian Peninsula. It consists of eight major halls each of which provides an independent objective presentation.
The halls are arranged in a historical succession where each one has its own architectural design. And as a visitor, all you have to do is to follow the signs. Truly, it is a treat for all visitors interested in knowing a bit more on the local history and culture.
A great thing about this place is that cameras are allowed. Let me show you a few pictures then! 🙂 Again, this is just a glimpse of all things the museum have on display. This is a must visit for anyone travelling to this part of the world.
